You made me think of a word that should be retired and my niece’s spelling bee competition. Her father could not make it so I went with my sister to cheer her on. An auditorium filled with about three hundred people, the whole time we are watching and waiting for her chance to show her genius. The first two words she aced with relative ease, but the third word made absolutely no sense to me and it must have made about as much sense to my sister because we simultaneously burst out in uncontrollable laughter. I could not stop, out of all the fucking words they could have used her principal at the podium used the only one that was as redundant as it was complex. Even I did not spell it right, and for the two hours that followed it became a battle of wills to not burst out in laughter…it was horrible…and excruciatingly tense, but I had forgotten about it until I read this comment so thanks. She misspelled it, and I’ll never forget the looks the other students parents were giving us. The word is thorough~~fair~~fare, some words do need to be retired though, I agree completely.
